“We have spent many hours cataloging books in our book collector software. The software is awesome! Really, one of the best I have ever used and very affordable. It is so simple and intuitive. My seven-year old does a lot of cataloging and really enjoys it. She often says she wants to be a librarian. ;) Well done!”

"I have been using book collector for many years but have just really gotten serious about doing a full inventory. During this time of making a much more extensive use of this program let me first say I
Thank you for your fine product, I am really very very satisfied with what it does."

One great data base/software
"This is one great data base/software
I have scanned and categorized 230 + books
in a very short time. The next phase - adding books with no bar codes will take longer, but I am confident that it will go well.
The very old books I will leave for the third and final inventory
What a lot of thoughtful work you have put into this program. Thank you! :)"

Anxious to scan the books
"I just downloaded the book inventory system
and the scanner. I got one of my books and scanned it! Up comes the book cover picture, a description, ISBN number. WOW!
The kids are going to help me scan books intomorrow on the last day of school! WOW! This is so
reasonable in price and will be so much fun. I think the kids can even scan books for check out (I have to keep reading my instructions, LOL!).
THANK YOU! I now have a way to organize my classroom books (close to 3,000 maybe?). My students are helping me clean my room and are anxious to help scan the books in! I posted on teachers.net about your product so others can have this system!"

A time saver
"Thank you for putting together an inventory program for my book collection
. It has been a blessing to use.
It eliminates writing/typing down every deatail of each every book it is definately a time saver. "

"Book Collectorz is so fantastic!
I've used it to create a library for our school. It acts as our card catalogue and it is wonderful! Its super easy for teachers to use, making finding books by subject a breeze. Its also easy to manage "checked out" books through its Loan feature. Its been quick and easy to add new books automatically or manually, and makes taking inventory a breeze.
I love that I can tag books by their topics to create easy reference themed lists for display; Poetry, Valentines Day, Feelings, ABCs, . . . . I am by no means a computer whiz, knowing only the "basics" on my Mac, but this program was easy to learn, modify for our needs, and teach to others. Their manual and online support are thorough, quick, and strait forward enough for even me to follow.
The school administration has been so impressed with how organized and slick looking this program is. It really makes me look like I'm doing way more than I actually am : )
I love, Love, LOVE it!Now I can't wait to organize all of my books at home!

"I am currently using Book Collector 4.8 and so far it is winning hands down over the other inventory software
that I have been evaluating. I currently have approximately 5,000 books in my personal library
So user friendly
"My son bought this program for me using his credit card and I am thrilled to death with it. 25 years of adding to my home library
has resulted in my having to move twice to larger houses (this is true).
It will take me many weeks to enter all volumes, but I am having great fun doing it. I had seen other programs in book stores in San Francisco, but never one that was so user friendly and comprehensive. I love it!"
